I suppose you could call me a senior citizen by now. Yet I'm not too ancient. It happened that I grew up in an environment that was largely obsolete even when I was in it. My parents had me late in life and my world was very rural and quiet and almost locked into an earlier generation. Old cars, old boats, old darned near everything. Now new stuff I don't relate to even though I can somewhat run a computer. I am more modern now but even though that old life was harder, it really was better in a subtle way. Very hard to elucidate but still real and I'm old enough to compare the differences. Much of modern is very good but it all comes with a price. Sometimes that price is uncomfortably high. My wife cooked on a wood range from the time she married me. A year and a half ago we gave it up and I still don't think she's forgiven me for it. Old ways get into your blood or it is in your blood from the beginning. Either way, leaving it behind is somewhat painful and I think a person is somewhat poorer after it's gone. There is a lot I know and can do that very few people are aware of or even care much of anymore. The world really has changed.
